Universal Robina Corp. (URC) is all set to take initiatives towards its net zero goal in 2050. URC is one of the country’s largest food and beverage firms in the Philippines.
For this, the company has already decided to source its electricity needs from power producers that use renewable sources.
Issuing a statement, URC informed that it has already signed an agreement with MPower/Vantage, Bacman, and First Gen to supply its facilities with geothermal, solar and hydro energy.
Out of these, at least 18 of its facilities are located in Luzon while two more are based in the Visayas.
"These include factories in Pasig, Laguna, Cavite, Pampanga, Antipolo and Bulacan, as well as facilities in Cebu and Negros Occidental," the company informed.
It has been regarded as one of URC’s biggest projects so far to achieve the target of net zero.
